I passed after torture...(265)


I can not believe I passed and I am now an RN !!!!!! I went out to dinner and celebrated and have rechecked the sight to just look at my name come up more then I will admit :) Thank you for all the posts and support. A special thank you to Silverdragon, who took the time to send me words of encouragement. 265 is a lot of questions, my only suggestion is for anyone about to take the test is to take a sample test of 265 and do not pause it and try only to let yourself take only one break. I mean I felt like I was not mentally prepared to finish the "marathon" and would have benefited from studying as if 265 was my ending #. Good luck to all.
